Rare 1920's U.s. Navy Wing Insignia - Naval Aviation Observer - Pinback 2 3/4" For Sale

See the scans. Offered is an interesting and fine quality 1920's Navy "Naval Avistion Observer" wing insignia. These were in the same design as the gold Naval Aviator badge insignia, but were in silver color. They were in use between 1927 and 1929, when a completely different design was introduced. This is the full size 2 3/4" wide pinback insignia with locking safety catch. These are nice, heavy and good quality wings. They have the correct early incused Meyer shield hallmark on the left reverse and are hallmarked "STERLING." These are the finely feathered 1920's style design USN wings. The back of this insignia has scratched initials "A.C.C. Jr." Research is a possibility, as there were very few Naval Aviation Observers designated.Also included is a smaller wing, which is the same silver design and is hallmarked STERLING and pinback with an open catch. It is 1 5/8" size.

Generally excellent condition. I believe this is only the second set of these I have had in 40+ years. !!! Quite scarce.

I have been a full time dealer in militaria for over forty years. I specialize in American medals and decorations, as well as insignia and books. I also buy and sell better Boy Scout items and Civilian Conservation Corps material. offer with confidence - in forty plus years, I have had fewer than ten returned items for any reason. I have had over 12,000 transactions with only three returns.

NOTE: AS A SERVICE TO MY CUSTOMERS I OFTEN SEND MY ITEMS POSTPAID OR IF I DO CHARGE A FEE, IT IS ALWAYS BELOW THE ACTUAL COST OF POSTAGE. I FIND "HANDLING FEES" CHARGED BY SELLERS TO BE OBNOXIOUS. I NEVER CHARGE ANY FEE FOR PACKAGING. I am very good about getting my orders out promptly, sometimes same day and almost always within 24 hours. NO OVERSEAS SALES, U.S. ONLY. Sorry about that, but my airmail small packets are being stolen enroute to England and Belgium.

I will combine postage on multiple orders. PAY PAL is preferred, please. Thanks. George B. Harris, P.O. Box 1136, Alfred, NY 14802.
